goal is to let this country go over the fiscal cliff because he wants the economy to fail because he wants president obama to fail. john boehner, again, i think the worst speaker ever, it's a time for leadership, not for playing political games. american people have spoken. this is a time for leadership. i think if john boehner is unwilling to lead, we've got to put pressure on him to get the hell out of the way. fish or cut bait. get the hell out of the way. he has no backbone. he has no balls. he is a lousy, lousy leader. he is a looser. i think we ought to start putting the pressure on him. let's pick a fight today with john boehner. it's not picking a fight with boehner. it's just doing something to save this country. so, peter, how do people -- i call on you join me in call okay john boehner lead or get out of the way. >> peter: if you want to send him an e-mail speaker.gov/contact. you can send it to him. if you are on twitter >> bill: speaker.gov spiritists we are tweeting this as well. if you are on twitter he is tweeting @speakerboehner,

last time and who gave us the great economy of the '90s. these are people we should listen to. >> bill: and john pedesto former chief of staff. so question... can the republicans -- the republicans assert we can get all of the revenue we need by simply closing loopholes and getting rid of some deductions. they won't tell us exactly which ones they're talking about right? >> right. >> bill: we can get there. we don't have to raise tax rates. is that -- any truth to that? >> look, there is money to be had in reforming the code and getting rid of some of the deductions and credits and reforming them. no question about it. but if you just do that, and actually if you do that and lower the rates as the republicans proposed, what you end up doing is cutting taxes for people at the top and raising taxes for people in the middle and the bottom and that -- we don't think that's a good approach at all. but what we've done is combined the rates from clinton with a similar reform and we've gone point by point and you c
